In the second part of the series “What is TRUTH?”, we will examine truth and evidence from a Bahá’í and legal perspective. We will discuss some objective indicators of truth in the context of the law. We will also delve into the Bahá’í principles surrounding the “Independent Investigation of Truth” and how we can apply these teachings in a world of “fake news” and the sensational bait-to-click online atmosphere we currently find ourselves in.

“… every individual member of humankind is exhorted and commanded
to set aside superstitious beliefs, traditions and blind imitation of ancestral forms in religion and investigate reality for himself.”

“… see with thine own eyes and not through the eyes of others.”

“In order to find truth we must give up our prejudices, our own small trivial notions; an open receptive mind is essential.”

~ Quotes from the Bahá’í Writings ~
